It sounds like you may have had a bad experience with a travel agent. That is no reason to paint all travel agents with the same brush. The same can be said about any profession. Also, the same incident could have happened with a cruise line representative too. In addition, we are only hearing one side of the story here. Often a lot of information gets left out in translation.
